Xmas Card for Daisy

Created this Christmas card for Daisy's 1st Christmas with us. I heat embossed on Kraft cardstock a Stampabilities dog stamp and the stamp is named Daisy; yes the stamp is named Daisy, so I had to buy it when the Stampabilities stamps were 50% at Hobby Lobby and this is first time using. Wanted to make a Christmas card to celebrate Daisy's 1st Christmas with us. Awhile ago I had cut a Mark's Finest Papers stamp that was 'Oopsy Daisy!' so I could use the 'Daisy!' part separately. I added a Santa hat, bead embellishments & jingle bell embellishments I had bought from Hobby Lobby on sale last year for 50% off.

brad: the Paper Studio gold jingle bells
embellishments: Christmas Treasure Beads - red jeweled  felt Santa hat

Where's Rudolph? Oh Deer Xmas Card

Could not resist titling this 'Where's Rudolph?' Can you find Rudolph?

Created this Christmas card using a couple Recollections stamps.Used American Crafts glitter gel pens to add the bright spots of color. Used another pen to add some white. Added ribbon. 

Used a base that is only 1/8" bigger than the layer on top of it. I've always had a problem with placing the layers crooked if they were not 1/4" bigger. I asked a friend, Susan, of Expression Avenue and she said she eyeballs it  & puts a corner down. My problem was I was putting a side down all at once so I tried the corner method and it worked.
